You can learn all kinds of things from quilting in the quiet of the night. I did....let us see:
I learned that if you are FMQ'ing and you have to fill a bobbin back up - that if you don't change the tension back to regular or normal that you end up with a ball of thread mess - worthless except for a birds nest.
I learned that if you are trying to sandwich a quilt that is taller than you and you hang it on a wall - to use a step stool to spray quilt basting spray. Quilt basting spray is worse than Aqua Net hair spray and took 4 washings to get out of my hair.
I learned that you must use a calculator to add your measurements because at 3 a.m. 23 + 23 = 56 inches but in the light of day and after having coffee it only measures 46 and you can save yourselve an hour of trying to figure out why the back is so much larger than the front.
That at 3 a.m. Righty tighty and lefty Lucy doesn't make sense...while changing the walking foot; turning till I just about pulled a muscle in my shoulder; yelling at the machine and oiling the screw thinking I over tightened it.....I kept repeating that....well repeating it is good - but at 3 a.m. your left hand becomes your right and vice versa - by morning they have changed back and are in their correct spot.
Best of all...I learned - I'm not quilting at 3 a.m. again....I spent 3 hours undoing all the 3 a.m. quilting fairies work after I had coffee today!
